Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

Yes, repent! Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

I Need a Waterfall

The outrage that changes and saves this world is the outrage of love. And so I lean into His love, a relational grace; the empowering evidence of my friendship with Jesus.


Heaven, Hell, and the Older Brother

If our hearts don’t truly desire to see all our brothers and sisters “in the party” in this life and the next, it’s past time to repent.

Why Does God Test Us?

Every test by God is an invitation to transition from one narrative to another, from control to love, from orphan to son or daughter, from bondage to freedom, from fractured thinking to wholeness, from our perspective to His, from our best thoughts about who He is, to the truth about who He is, from our story, to the whole story; the one He is telling.

Who Was the Cross For?

The punishment Jesus endured on the cross wasn’t required by God.

Questioning My Answers / A Manifesto for Spiritual Searchers

For a long time, I felt ostracized and insecure when labeled a heretic. Then one day I found encouragement after revisiting the definition of heresy. Simply put, the definition is, “an opinion that is profoundly at odds with what is generally accepted.” I felt that if everybody is saying the same thing then somebody is not thinking. Back then and now, my heart cry to the church I was a part of was, “Let my people think.”

Randall Worley / Questioning My Answers

Randall Worley talks about having a “beginner’s mind,” faith while embracing mystery, pioneering and the nature of heresy, the limits of language, approaching scripture through love, and the importance of remaining curious while understanding that God is not insecure or defensive when we raise hard questions.

Michael McElyea / You Love Me, But You Don’t Know Who I Am

You love me, but you don’t know who I am. Those are the words God spoke to Michael several years ago and it took him on a journey into measureless love, grace, and union with an always good, never leaving, no distance or separation, Triune God. With grace and joy the conversation dove into the two greatest lies on the planet, Penal Substitution and Eternal Conscious Torment.

I am a newborn babe / The world is fresh and terrifying / “Incubator” and “Crib” are not words I care for / Put me against your breasts / Skin to skin / Heart to heart / All I want is one thing familiar / and it’s not in a box / It’s in your arms / For the love of God / do not put me in a box…

MADE To Create

Our goal is to provide quality content for creative children and families:

EPISODE ONE  In this, our first video, we’ll introduce a family walking a tightrope. We will also complete an abstract art challenge and conclude with a chat about how being a creative person is very much like walking a tightrope.

EPISODE TWO  In our second episode, we’ll introduce 13-year-old, Leigh, who happens to be a co-director for Made To Create. She will teach us a little Taekwondo. One of the essential Tenets of Taekwondo is INTEGRITY. We will learn a little more about this word as well as complete a fun, craft challenge by using items we would normally just throw away.

EPISODE THREE  In this episode, we’ll introduce some of our family who’ll share why being creative is so contagious! Our special guest is Mary Clark who is not only the matriarch of this family but an expert quilter! You’ll learn so much more than art from her and leave encouraged! Our creative challenge this week, will sharpen your focus and relax you as you create an optical illusion.

A RELATIONSHIP WHERE THE SON IS ALWAYS DESPERATE IS DYSFUNCTIONAL

A RELATIONSHIP WHERE THE SON IS ALWAYS DESPERATE IS DYSFUNCTIONAL

Jason gives one of his foundational messages on living in an awareness of our Father’s measureless love. This message highlights one of the greatest shifts in Jason’s life and faith when He repented from the dysfunction of living desperate for His Father’s affection, love, blessing, promises, and so on.   

REPENT, THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN YOU!

REPENT, THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN YOU!

Repenting is a 2 min, 4 min, 24 min, 24 hours, 240 days and on and on revelation and agreement of our Father’s perspective in which we lay our burdens down, we exchange brokenness for righteousness, poverty for hope, peace, and joy; and sin for wholeness.
